At 630 miles, the Loire, often known as the Garden of France, is France’s longest river. A land of amazing Chateaux and fabulous wines, that stretches from the vineyards of the Sancerre/Pouilly Fumé to the sea and Muscadet. Here, its classic whites from the Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, and Muscadet grapes are producing lighter dry styles unique to the area. In the central areas are some fabulous sweet wines as well as Anjou, that ever popular rosé. The reds are from the Gamay and Pinot Noir varieties and are lighter in style.
